    So the swiss army knife will not be allowed in hand-carry too?

    That’s right, Ivan. Multi tool with mini blade is already disallowed. Swiss army knife is a definite no-no in CARRY-ON luggage.
    Thus, backpackers, long-stay visitors, travelers who use such tools etc, have always packed their baggages with special attention.
    See list of prohibited items from TSA guidelines (click here), U.S. Dept of Homeland Security.

    Thanks for the mention! Yes, the safety whistle has come in handy plenty, as has a small plastic doorstop, which I use when I’m staying in a solo room to just have peace of mind and know if someone is coming in the door in the middle of the night. Small to carry and quite lightweight, so it’s always with me just in case.

    Safe travels!

    Welcome here, Jodi.
    Yes, the safety whistle & doorstop are small, lightweight – and helpful travel companions.
    It’s been a year since I linked to your post here. Have an inspiring New Year of travels!
